January 2020

Any month that begins with six planets in one area of your chart is going to be lopsided and when this includes the Sun and Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system then life is going to be weighted in that direction. Spare a thought for some of your cosmic mates who have this line up in a busy or even challenging area of your life, while you in turn have won the cosmic jackpot. For those six planets are all in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and half of them will remain here for most if not all of 2020. In addition, this comes with built in support from Uranus, who turns direct in an adventurous part of your chart on 11th January. Life might be busy and its normal demands might continue, but in terms of where the weight of planetary activity is located, it is on life's more fun, playful, romantic and creative pursuits. This is not just an overriding theme this month but with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion here until December, this is the greatest area for growth, expansion and opportunity in 2020. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January here but even after he leaves on 21st January this will remain the dominant area of your chart and theme for 2020. Yet there are also some real opportunities on the income and job fronts this month and in the perfect proportions. You begin the month with Venus in your work sector and while she will leave on 14th January, Mercury will return on 17th January and the Sun on 21st January. Throughout that time there will be support from Juno in your income sector. Had it been the other way round and you had this much planetary activity in a playful part of your chart and six planets in your work sector it would have been a very different story. Instead, there are enough opportunities on each front to ensure you have the right balance between work and play. In the meantime, Venus' return to your relationship sector on 14th January will be good news for your relationships.


Week beginning Monday 20th of January 2020

We are still in the first three weeks of the year but already the dynamics are shifting. What we have this week that we didn't last week is diversity. The faster moving planets are starting to move on and populate new areas of your chart or at least bring new energy into already active areas. One area of your chart where this will be noticeable is on the relationship front. While you have had Neptune in your relationship sector since 2012, having just turned direct in November he hasn't tried to compete with more active areas of your chart. However, that has changed with Venus, the planet of love's return, with your relationships all of a sudden back on your radar again. Another example is on the job front, where things are not starting from scratch but where the Sun and Mercury are picking up from where Venus left off. At the same time, the Moon's return to your home and family sector on Monday, for its first visit of 2020 and since Mars' return, will put a lot more focus on home, family and/or property matters.


Thursday 23rd of January 2020

In any other year, having the Moon in a playful part of your chart during the Sun's early days in your work sector would help with the crossover from one to the other. It was just two days ago that the Sun left a playful part of your chart and with the Moon joining the Sun to create a New Moon in your work sector over the weekend, this is helping to create a smooth transition. For this is the point in the year when a playful period ends and a busy period begins. However, this is not most years and there will be no transition from one to the other, with the two needing to co exist.

About Virgo

Information about your birth sign


Virgo is the sixth sign of the Zodiac, ruled by the planet Mercury. Virgo is the second sign ruled by this dualistic God, who also rules over Gemini, where his energy is expressed through the element of air and the mind.

In the earth sign of Virgo, Mercury becomes more discerning and critical about what he has learned, applying astute attention to detail and striving for perfection. Through your sign he offers himself in service to the earth, in artistic, practical, material and mundane ways.

You are one of the humble workers of the zodiac and you don't mind rolling up your sleeves and getting on with it. You'll do it neatly and with exactitude, because that is your way. You have an innate sense of order and a keen eye for precision and you take satisfaction in doing what you do, to the very best of your ability.

You are something of a perfectionist and you often strive for purity. This gives you a more than passing interest in health and hygiene, as well as a desire for cleanliness. It's not a foregone conclusion whether or not your immediate surroundings are neat, clean and ordered, but you'd definitely like them to be!

You sign is a mutable, restless, nervous and changeable one. The ruler of Virgo was a God with wings on his feet, so your restless spirit needs some change and variety in your working day and in your life.

As an earth sign, you're very much at home with mother nature and at times you can do a very good impersonation of her too!

There are many Virgo's who are secretly the power behind a throne. Your sign and your nature are known to be introverted. You're naturally shy and retiring, so you're quite happy to work behind the scenes, and let someone else have the praise or attention.

The Virgo instinct is to be useful, and you seem to never tire of helping others, personally or professionally. Virgo doctors and nurses abound, also medical herbalists, nutritionists, dietitians, therapists and alternative therapists. If we don't find you in one of those professions, you're sure to be knowledgeable in at least one of those areas.

With your keen observation skills and fine attention to small detail, you can also excel in the arts, putting something of beauty into earthly form is an expression of Virgo, as is any craft where you make something beautiful or useful with your hands. Everything you do will show your love of order and symmetry, even your handwriting, which is probably neat.

You get along best with the other quiet, humble and introverted signs like your good self. Those are the earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn, and the water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

If Mercury was not in the same sign as the Sun when you were born, this will modify the experience and expression of your Virgo energy. If you'd like to know more about your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be happy to help. You're always helping others, it might be good to allow someone to help you for a change!
